Reliable Moving & Delivery has several different ways of pricing moves, because we operate on General Binding Estimates. Since we do not offer by the hour services or by pricing by weight, we price our residential moves by the truck size needed for the job.
Offering prices by the truck size gives us a guideline for pricing. For example, a 26-foot truck is priced by how full it is. 1/2, 3/4, or 100% full. Many times customers do not understand how much inventory they actually have.
By utilizing this pricing structure, we also give customers the ability to stop at 3/4 or full, opting to take the smaller loose items by their own transport to save money.
An average two-to three-bedroom apartment will fit into a 17-foot cube truck in most situations.
An average home of three bedrooms will fit into a 26-foot truck.
After reviewing your inventory, a truck-size will be determined. The price for the truck includes the professional moving crew, gas, labor, shrink wrapping, break down, and the set up of bedroom furniture, moving pads, dollies, and one trip.
Excessive walkways, stair carry, extra stops, or additional trips can change the normal truck price.
The truck is loaded to its fullest capacity, utilizing all space available.
All shipments are valued at 60 cents per pound as required by the NYS Department of Transportation. If you require a larger insurance valuation, this may also change the price of our move.
All cargo insurance claims have a $500.00 deductible.
